I don’t even know what to call this.
Stranger: (( Ah! I Hope you don’t mind an OC! ;w; It’s an OC of Atlantis. Merpeople AU where she has the bottom half of an octopus, okay? )) The tropical sea was warm on this day. Pleasantly swimming about the undersea current was a rare creature- A Mermaid. But a more…Common kind for this area. Octomaid was really the only way to describe it. The bottom half of her body was tentacles. Smooth, tan coloured ones. The top half was what you’d expect for a creature such as her: Pretty by most human standards. It was the top half of a human woman from the waist up with olive skin dotted with freckles here and there with soft curves- And a bust covered by a cloth tied tightly in the back to match. Her face’s details weren’t particularly angular or rounded, somewhere between that. Her eyes were a light shade of green, while her hair was a light grey colour. She didn’t care much for her appearance, though. As long as she could visit her friends. And those friends were in fact- Fishes. Various tropical ones that she would often visit whenever the ocean was nice and let in enough warmth and light. Most other merfolk were hard to come by, some of them even having these strange fleshy tails split into two and fish torsos! But she enjoyed life anyway. It was a slow, simple, lazy one. But she liked it. Nothing was going to cha—….What? Whats that up there? It seemed interesting! The girl swam up to it curiously. It was…It looked like…It looked like a rock…But cut in half…And made from wood. It was like those odd things Yoli had seen underwater on the sea floor but nicer, cleaner, and certainly not covered in algae and home to creatures like her…But in gangs that would gladly steal all her things and cut her stomach open for dinner…So she swam up, looking at it from her angle, sitting in a large bundle of ropes strung together. It seemed inviting enough…Even to the fish…Until the thing closed around her body, and it was being pulled up. Oh no…This must’ve been one of those gangs sne was thinking about- Operating these surface things somehow. Yoli attempted pulling the ropes, grabbing them, pushing them, and biting. But it only made her situation worse as it was pulled faster. Within a few moments- She met the open air, along with wriggling fish who she tried to comfort but to no avail. She was dumped onto the wooden deck, landing on her back with a wet ‘thud’. She just laid there in shock, staring wide eyed up at the world around her. (( I’m fine with anyone! Please don’t shoot me down for describing her as nice looking. I’ve RP’ed really gross monstery merpeople and i’d like a change of scene, okay? Please don’t leave hate! I’m on mobile so you won’t see me type. ))
You have disconnected.
hm. iunno guys
the resemblance is uncanny
i suppose i should issue an apology here.
i don’t intend to speak for people that aren’t my race here. the post felt wrong and i reacted to it, using words that i should have thought out better. i was unaware that the ‘Engrish’ accent was restricted solely to the Japanese, as i’ve heard it used against Asians in general, so i made a false assumption. i’m sorry.
i still feel as though the person who made that starter was in the wrong, although for different reasons now. but that doesn’t matter. i made a mistake, i didn’t do my research, and i wish i had. i’m still lost on matters of what makes up a race, considering the education i’ve received on a variety of matters is lackluster at best, but i’ll be looking into it and doing my best from now on to make sure i don’t fuck up like that again
i’d like to say one thing, though- only responding to the anons that say nice things because i’m too much of a dunce to realize my mistake? i’ve answered all the asks i’ve gotten about this, actually.
I think people got upset over the misnomer of "racism" as it is an overused and often incorrectly implemented. But yeah they are missing the main point of your argument that the Engrish was offensive and that the rper in question was an asshat.
possibly. idk what else to call it though? and i’m definitely not the best judge of this shit, so i may have fucked up without really knowing. i apologize if i did. all i know is, it wasn’t funny, it felt more than a little mean-spirited, and the ensuing conversation between therantinghetaliachick didn’t help matters. either way, i’m just. very done
Your definition of race is nationality=race, but that's NOT true. Chinese is a nationality, an ethnicity, and not even that applies to everyone in China. Ever hear of Tibet? Ever hear of Taiwan, or Hong Kong, or Macau? They're are WAY more diverse than the China you're thinking of. Chinese is not an origin of humanity. Negroids, Capoids, Caucasioids, Mongoloids, Australoids, and Pacific Islanders are. How come white nations aren't races to so many people, but god forbid if it's an Asian nation!
yeah, no shit it’s more diverse than that. and hey, i’m not an expert on it. okay? i don’t even know when it became a discussion of whether or not Chinese is a race, because honestly my point was that the Engrish accent was racist! i never mentioned a specific god damn race in the first place, i just said it was fucking racist! suddenly it blew up into ‘oh Chinese isn’t a race’! no shit i’ve heard of those places- did i suddenly start living under a rock? i’m not even going to address it because i’m fucking tired of it because i didn’t want this shit to happen i just meant to fucking point out that Engrish is insulting and unfunny. and guess what? that last bit? i never fucking implied that, and if i did, fuck, i need to watch my wording better!
fuck. i’m done answering questions about this.
THIS! IS! NOT! OKAY!
like okay i get the shit going on behind this. i get the problems people may have with this. but fiction is different from reality and that doesn’t give you the right to send shit like this
yoooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo give me my pizza and ramen
get ur own man this ain’t a charity service
so omegle isn’t letting me get logs so i gotta do it THIS way
Is Chinese really a race? Because we don't say "racially Syrian" or "racially French", we say "African, Caucasian, Anglo Saxon, Latino ect." Idk that's just what I thought on the matter but I do agree with your other points regardless.
i’m pretty sure it is??? i mean, yeah, you don’t say that, but saying Chinese isn’t a race is a bit like saying all Asians are the same, and it’s a quick way of identifying which area of Asia you come from and there are enough differences that you can figure out the difference, so to say Chinese isn’t a race is a bit odd
but the whole point wasn’t originally about it being a race. the point was, it was a shitty, racist stereotype that seems to be communal between the Asian nations, to portray them as being confused with l’s and r’s, and yes, the English dub does it, but that doesn’t make it okay for YOU to do, it’d be better if the dub hadn’t gone with that at all.
and no, stereotypes are NOT universal here. every nation has their own stereotypes. i just. argh. i have so many problems with that person okay
EDIT: i’m still trying to figure this out. like, yeah, we say that, but those are just broad groups? like, African covers Egyptian, Kenyan, etc; and we do say Syrian and French. those are all, essentially, races. so???
